goes without saying the price can't be beat. some noise filters through the walls, and the heater thermostat was so sensitive that it seemed to kick on every 5 minutes, and was pretty noisy. But again, considering the price, was well worth it. Would just recommend to the staff to hand out a brochure of info about what hotel includes (had to ask if they […] had ice machine/microwave in the building), and amenities nearby. Turns out there's an indoor rock climbing gym on the same block, that info would have been useful ahead of time for planning purposes (as well as other amenities in the area). great for single person/traveling alone, a couple wouldn't be too bad, but not great for a family. Make sure you don't get a room near a stairwell (banging doors) or front desk (too much foot traffic/noise). Would def recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"it is not an hotel"
The room was to smaaaaaallllll. You open the door and the bed is right there . Did never said in their advertising that you had to leave the building and walk to a cafe 3 blocks away to get your breakfast. Overall I was not satisfy at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A place to sleep, thats about it."
We chose this hotel because we were going to the Barclays Center for a couple of basketball games. It is about a 10-15 minute walk. Not bad at all. There are a couple of hole in the wall bars along the way. The room itself was very clean but also VERY small. It was a small bathroom with a bed, thats it. There wasn't even a path to walk on the side of […] the bed, it was that small. So it is in a great location but definitely just a place to sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Avoid this hotel at all costs! Budget is budget, but this isn't worth it... A cheap room typically means smaller size and less amenities. If you've traveled through Europe on a budget then you know what I mean. However, budget hotels shouldn't include dirty, unwashed and stained sheets and covers, a clogged sink, a staff that is either helpless or has […] attitude and also a list of things promised (and presumably that you pay for) that aren't included (like a safe, minibar, fridge...). The website shows a large lobby, what looks like a bar on a rooftop garden, and also a dining area... don't expect anything like that. Also night security is lax and the walls are thin and some rooms looked literally like they were 3 feet from the front door on the first floor. Glad I was upstairs at least. Save up for a nicer option! Anything! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel value in brooklyn"
The hotel is clean and well located and very affordable. The breakfast is very nice as well. My room was small but was well worth the price. Thank you and we'll see you next time we are in Brooklyn.Genuine Expedia guest review
"solid hotel, sucky cable,"
room was very small...but the kicker was the VERY limited cable tv offering; no local channels, and a spattering of minor cable options.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel room was small (that was to be expected). It was loud! Drunk people coming in at all hours of the night proclaiming (in very loud voices) how drunk they are. Convenient location but horrible night's sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was small, but as described and very inexpensive. Free breakfast at cafe 3 blocks away, good location for access to restaurants and subway. As describedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
TV was high on the wall to the left of the bed. AC/heating unit under the window stuck over the bed by a few inches. Bathroom was oddly huge compared with tiny room. There's only a tiny desk in the lobby and no chairs, so it gets clogged when others are checking in. Staffers in hotel were friendly. Everything was clean. Location is a bit on the edge […] of the heart of Park Slope. Barclay's Center is a few blocks away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Breakfast at nearby diner was wonderful. Extremely small room approx 8 x 10. Bed shoved against a wall with maybe 2 foot aisle on other side. Only way to watch TV was to stand against the door. Clean room but ragged towels. At times unattended lobby. If you need an expensive place to lay your head down, this may be for you!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"extremely convenient to NYC's Barclay's Center"
This was a great location for an overnight stay after we attended a concert at the Barclay's Center. The room was very clean and the front desk staff were very polite and helpful. Guests do have to be prepared for the small size of the hotel and the rooms, though. Luckily, my husband and I don't mind being in close quarters with one another! The room […] was so small that we had to negotiate around one another very carefully to move from the bed to the bathroom and back. And, when you're 7 months pregnant, small spaces like this can present even more of a challenge! Also, at initial check-in the front desk person had a little bit of trouble finding the reservation and acted as though he were a bit confused about the hotels.com confirmation number. We got past all that and our stay -- overall -- was quite pleasant. There was a tall wardrobe with multiple drawers in the room, so there was generally sufficient space to put away things. But, in a room this small, some additional well-placed shelving in the sleeping area and in the bathroom, as well as an extra small folding table, wouldn't hurt!

Horrible. No customer service training at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pros and cons--be prepared"
Pro: Location convenient to subways into Manhattan; Great complimentary breakfast offerings at nice cafe 2 blocks away with very friendly staff who made us feel welcome each morning; comfortable bed; clean room Con: No bedside lighting--only light was overhead, with light switch by the door; TV channel lineup was quite strange--no networks, and only […] about 10 cable channels, inc BBC America and the Tennis channel; Small room, which would not be an issue except the armoire was very inconveniently located, making it impossible to move around; we were excited about what looked like a rooftop terrace on the website--doesn't exist! Overall, OK for the money, but next time we'll stay at the Holiday Inn Express 2 blocks away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"World's Smallest Rooms"
Not a bad place to stay for a night. I wouldn't want to be there for more than a night or two though. The rooms are small, even for NYC standards. The hotel is about an 8 block walk from the Atlantic Ave MTA station, so you can easily get around everywhere you need to go.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple European-style pied a terre"
Loved it. Perfect for what it is--a tiny clean room for comfortable night's sleep. Simple, not luxury. Modern style. Just outside of the trendy Park Slope areas, but easy walking distance to them. Parking garages within several blocks. No-parking fire hydrant space in front of hotel made for easy car-service pick up and drop off. Has an elevator (some […] hotels in this price range are walk-ups). Perfect for simple overnight stay. Rooms are tiny, Comforter/bedspread. Like small European hotels. I will stay here again. Very satisfied. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good deal close to Park Slope"
For those visiting family or friends in Park Slope this hotel is one of the best deals around. We didn't find anything less expensive. The hotel is newly completed. The bedroom and bath are immaculate. Parking is available on the street, although the neighborhood might make some nervous who are unfamiliar with Brooklyn . There are a few rough edges […] that should be corrected: inadequate lighting in the room, with a couple of fixture outlets covered by blank plates; dark hallway apparently due to a burned out light fixture bulb. Front desk was generally helpful but was not able to mail us a couple of items we accidentally left behind in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice for budget-minded travelers"
Even though I knew from reading on this site before that the room would be small, I wasn't quite prepared for how small. It is really only adequate for sleeping. This hotel is more like a hostel, so it should be thought of that way. It's a great place to park your stuff while you're out in the city and to fall asleep at the end of each day, but people […] who need more space for young children or to work in the room should probably consider spending extra for a more traditional hotel. It would also be nice if there was a vending machine or ice machine on the premises so guests didn't have to walk a block down the street to buy a cold drink. On the other hand, there are great things about the hotel. It is very competitively priced and close to Manhattan (20 minutes to Canal Street on the R subway line). The hotel staff are generally friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is provided at a neighborhood restaurant that has excellent food and service. Several other restaurants in the neighborhood provide great food at decent prices including one with 24 hour delivery to the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good enough for short trip to NYC"
If you plan to visit NYC for a short trip (3-4 nights or less) and don't want to pay Manhattan rates, then the Union Hotel is a decent option. It's a good deal conveniently located on the edge of Park Slope, a desirable neighborhood in Brooklyn, and its about 20-30 subway ride to midtown Manhattan. My fiance and I stayed on night for a fun trip to NYC […] and we had a room with a single king size bed. Though the room was quite small, its was clean. The only other drawback is that our window faced the adjacent street from the second floor. This made it difficult to have privacy without completely pulling down the shade, which blocks out virtually all sunlight. In terms of service, it was hit or miss. The attendant we met upon arrival was not pleasant, though the one we dealt with when leaving the hotel was quite friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value hotel with Manhattan access"
Clean, updated, comfortable room and bathroom. If traveling for business and/or needing desk space and room to spread out, this hotel may be challenging. First floor was noisy with comings and goings. Would stay there again, but would request a room on an upper floor. Hotel has no parking. Beware of any NY on-street overnight parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Brand new, good value, very small rooms"
The hotel is convenient to the subway (Union St to the south and Atlantic/Pacific to the north) on an industrial block, but just one block from 5th street (more shops/ restaurants). The hotel has been recently renovated and is very clean. The rooms are tiny but, hey, who goes to New York to stay in the hotel? The hotel gave us breakfast at a coffee […] shop down the street. There are no coffee makers in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for a brief stay"
I like that there was wi-fi, a newspaper and a voucher for complimentary breakfast at Station Cafe - 2 blocks walking distance. The bathroom/shower was very modern. The size of the room overall was small for the two of us but the king bed (which was 2-twin beds together) was surprisingly comfy. I wil stay here again when visiting family and boyfriend's […] family., Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
overall very pleased, the room was a little congested and small but for the price it was worth it. What was really nice that they offered me a beautiful breakfast. I also loved the decor of the room. I loved the courteousness of the staff. Be careful with parking. There is only off street parking but you must park across the street if you check in on […] a Sunday, and you must remove your car before 8 am or it will be towed. That was a little inconvenience. However, overall everything was blessed. I would go again and recommend to my friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We intentionally booked a "small room" which still had an ample queen sized bed, large bathroom, and convenient storage space. The breakfast was great, closeness to subway line, nearby restaurants, and the availability of nearby on-street parking all were great. Very clean and well-run budget hotel. Great bargain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do Yourself a Favor: Stay Someplace Else"
There is nothing good I can say about the hotel. We struggled to the door in the rain with our luggage, but a hotel worker sat in the tiny lobby and watched us try to open the door. The parking garage the hotel has an arrangement with is several blocks away. The room air conditioner went on and off all night. It was too stuffy and hot when it was off, […] and too cold when it was on. In addition, the noise kept us up much of the night. The staff was generally unfriendly, and English is not their primary language. When we checked out, the desk clerk didn't know anything about the coupons for a reduced parking rate, and he wouldn't call his boss because, "I don't want to wake him up." As a consequence, we paid $34 more for parking than we needed to. If this were the only hotel in New York City, I think I still would prefer sleeping on a park bench.

This hotel was quite expensive and just filthy. I told the front desk that the toilet was clogged when I arrived and they said they would fix it right away. When I returned that night, it still wasn't fixed. The shower was hairy, but the bed was the worst. There were at least 5 different stains of various colors. I'd sleep in a park before staying at […] the Union Hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"frequent visitor to NYC"
quality fanky place in a funky Brooklyn area. only for people who like NYC.Genuine Expedia guest review
to call this room tiny would be a great compliment. What hotels.com called a standard queen was called a cozy queen by the hotel. The only way it could be called standard was in comparison to a standard poodle. the room was about 7 by 10. the bed was in a corner partially overhung by the AC unit. to get out you had to crawl over your partner. When my […] wife opened her suitcase on the floor we could not open the bathroom door or the armoire door. note that there are other fairly standard amentites missing, such as kleenex. there is no bedside lamp. one person could stay in this room if they did not want to read in bed.

"cramped but clean"
My wife and I stayed here to keep costs down and to be in Brooklyn, rather than Manhattan. We accomplished both. The hotel is in a great location. The block around it is a bit run-down, but just one block away is the vibrant shopping/bar neighborhood of 5th Ave (Brooklyn version.) We were also pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service […] at the local diner serving the complimentary breakfast to hotel guests. The only negatives were in the room itself. We stayed in a room with a queen bed, designated a "small" room. That does not begin to describe it. The room was barely bigger than the bed (seriously.) There was NO SPACE on 3 sides of the bed, perhaps 18 inches on the fourth. The door into the room would only open 40 degrees because it hit the bed. Two people CAN NOT co-exist in this room unless they are in bed or one is in the bathroom. The shower was the other issue. The lowest water pressure I have EVER experienced in any bath in the US. Calling it a trickle is being generous. With all this, I would recommend the hotel to people who just need a place to sleep and shower, but not if you are looking for comfort, and the "small" room or rooms should NEVER be occupied by more than one guest.

"Good place but rooms are small"
Great location. 2 blocks from subway. Tons of great small restaurants and cafes near by. Free breakfast included. Just be aware that the rooms are very small, so it's great if you are out and about and just need place to sleep, but do not expect to spend any time in the room other than that. As an example, I had room 300 and there was no desk and just […] a folding chair to sit in other than the bed. The bed was next to the window and there was less than 12inches on the side of the bed on the opposite wall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I was very upset about the size of the room did not balance out the cost..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beware of this Hotel"
We requested a king bed on an upper floor. We received 2 beds pushed together on the second floor. The comforter on the bed appears to be the proper size for a full size bed – not a queen or king bed. It did not fit my bed. I complained to housekeeping and to the front desk, asking them to bring the proper size comforter for my bed. No one ever came, […] and no appropriate bedding was ever supplied. You can see from the photos that the bed is too small for the headboard. i would estimate that the bed is about 8 inches narrower than a standard king bed. I also requested several times that the hotel honor my request to move to an upper floor. I was told that the hotel was sold out, and no upper floor rooms were available. I was assured that some rooms would become available overnight, and that I would be moved to an upper floor at that time. My Union Hotel room was so small that it was difficult to walk around it. No amenities are provided - no bucket for ice, no glasses, no lotion, no toothbrush, no refrigerator, etc. As a result of being on a low floor, I was awakened early in the morning by workers working on the street. I couldn't sleep the first night because i could hear the snoring of a person in the room adjacent to mine. The showers are tiny. You hardly have room to turn around. Overall, I definitely will not book this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fine if you manage expectations"
Small, serviceable hotel in a transitional Brooklyn neighborhood. Pros: The rooms and bathrooms are clean, and it's an easy walk from the R train. Cons: There is no lobby, just a desk in a vestibule upon check-in. The king room was two twin beds pushed together. It was convenient for our plans, so we were fine with staying here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny but very nice"
I liked this hotel. Bed was quite comfortable, the room was modern and clean. It was really tiny, however. Barely enough room for everything in the room. No lobby or reception area. However, the staff was helpful, the building was possibly a rehab and it was trendy and artsy. It was very close to the subway station (the R, which will take you straight […] into Manhattan) and the included breakfast at the diner around the corner was delightful. If you don't mind the small space, you will find the bed comfortable, the decor trendy and the area safe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will definitely stay again"
Great location, very central if you plan to spend a lot of time in Park Slope, and convenient to the subway. My friend got very sick and needed to stay in the room for a whole day-- the staff was so sweet and accommodating. They made sure she had food, went to get her medicine. They even offer a complimentary breakfast at a nearby diner where everyone […] was equally nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"the basics close to home"
My family owns a house on Degraw Street, so when all the apartments are rented and we need to check on the place we stay at the Union right down the block. The outside is nondescript with very limited signage so it can be hard to find. The rooms are VERY basic. The only light comes from the overhead. The king size bed is actually two twins pushed together. […] For the price and the convenience you really can't go wrong. The Union is consistently the cheapest hotel in the area, so if you are going to Brooklyn to experience Brooklyn and all you intend to do in the hotel is sleep, this is the best place for the money.

"small, uncomfortable room"
The room was only big enough for the bed. You could feel the springs of the bed which was really uncomfortable and to top it off the hotel is right in front of some warehouse and there were delivery trucks constantly going up and down the road and banging on the door to the warehouse early in the morning. I would not go here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
My first experience with Union Hotel wasn't bad but It wasn't better than ever either. As a romantic trip just for something like 3 or 4 hours it good a little bit. I hope when i go back there if there is another chance the service would be better than the first time. A better service means that the housekeeper should be on time with the towel. She […] was late last time, she brought the towel like 30 minutes after my shower. That's all I had to say about the Union Hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, uncomfortable bed"
The location is great for BAM. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. We could feel every spring in the mattress and hardly slept as a result. if they would get new mattresses, the hotel would be great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Got in very late. Crashed immediately. Woke up with a sore back and realized that I'd slept on a box spring. No mattress. For the price, I would stay there again if I could sleep on an actual bed.

Mostly it was fine but the water in the shower is not hot, and at night people were coming in and out of one of the rooms on our floor all night, which says to me either "drugs" or "prostitution."
